Indian rice

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Basmati rice
2 cups Water
2 tablespoons Butter
3 Cardamom pods (up to)
2 Slivers of cinnamon (1 normal sized piece should do 4 batches of rice)
1 pinch Saffron
Salt

I tried to replicate the rice that is served in a nearby Indian restaurant and believe this to be very close. Anyway, it's good! How can you go wrong with basmati?

Saute the rice in the butter for a couple of minutes. Add the water and spices and bring to a boil, cover and simmer ~15 minutes. I sometimes add a handful of frozen English peas, too.
